Graduation ceremonies are a rite of passage for many, especially college and university students who have studied hard to complete their courses before joining society as contributing members. So, spending just a bit of extra money on these graduation ceremonies as a celebration of that doesn’t seem like a big deal.

With that being said, is it really worth it to spend much on the graduation ceremony of a primary school, Standard 6 class?

Netizen, Euforia Is, took to his Facebook page to call out a primary school in Sabah for their pricey graduation ceremony for the school’s Standard 6 class.

Graduation 1

He wrote, “RM140 for every student. Parents or guardians are charged a payment of RM100 more to accompany their kid only for a Standard 6 certificate presentation ceremony. Standard 6.”

What makes the ceremony pricey is that the school plans to hold it at a hotel, instead of within their own premises like their gathering hall.

“Usually, these graduation ceremonies can be held at the institution or at their facilities for Standard 6 students, instead of at a hotel. If it’s diploma level or degree level, then this is fine. Please think about it. If this is the case, it’s not worth it and it’s wasteful,” he shared.


As he does not want to make accusations, he also went on to ask his friend, who is a teacher, her opinion on this matter.

“I don’t know when an announcement or an instruction letter banning schools from doing this will happen. The economy is unstable but they want to use a hotel? Isn’t better if that payment goes into the child’s SSPN savings or to the preparation for them to go to secondary school?” the teacher responded in the comment section, echoing Euforia Is’s stance that having such a ceremony is wasteful.


Speaking to WORLD OF BUZZ, Euforia Is shared that there is a much bigger issue at play, leading to why the school had to look for outside venues. 

It turns out that the school’s facilities are in a bad condition due to flooding, which is why they decided to seek alternative venues for the graduation ceremony. Though, it is unsure as to how they ended up selecting hotels instead of cheaper locations such a community halls, considering many parents may not be able to afford it.

This opens up a discussion towards a much bigger problem, the lack of proper facilities for schools in Sabah and Sarawak.

We genuinely hope that Education Minister Fadhlina Sidek looks into providing allocations for much necessary fixtures for schools in Sabah and Sarawak.
